Liam Gallagher has joked his brother Noel is “still playing hard to get” when it comes to organising an Oasis reunion.

Performing his Definitely Maybe 30th anniversary tour in Cardiff yesterday night (3rd June), Liam dedicated ‘Half the World Away’ to his “little brother”.

While introducing the song to the crowds, Liam said: “So I’m gonna dedicate this next tune to my little brother, who’s still playing hard to get.

“But that’s alright,” the singer continued. “Word on the street is he was spotted in a really posh chocolate shop - one of them Thorntons - buying some chocolates. So you never know! D’you know what I mean?!”

Liam and his brother Noel have shared a back and forth discussion about why the pair won’t be reuniting anytime soon for many years now, ever since the band split up in 2009. 

In April 2024, bassist Andy Bell suggested fans could “probably” expect an Oasis reunion at some point in the future, and many fans were teased into thinking a recent announcement from the band was going to be a reunion reveal (it was in fact a special edition album release).

Liam later spoke out against the idea that fans should expect an Oasis reunion in the future, saying the band’s bassist shouldn’t “be getting people’s hopes up” as “it’s not big and it’s not clever.”

“I’ve never mentioned [an] Oasis reunion it’s over we must all really move [on] for our own mental health,” Liam told a fan. Bell later responded to Liam’s posts saying: “Apologies! Didn’t mean to get anyone’s hopes up, nothing to see here! X.”

Regardless of the lack of an Oasis reunion, Liam is currently delighting Oasis fans with his UK and Ireland Definitely Maybe tour, during which he’s performing the full album to celebrate its 30th anniversary, along with some “naughty b-sides”.
